More comprehensive information will be available in the WMO's final Statement, to be released in Spring 2016.
Most areas of the world experienced above-average annual temperatures, as indicated by the Temperature Percentiles map below.
century average—or 0.24°C (0.43°F) colder than the current record low December temperature of 1916.
In fact, December 2015 was the warmest month of any month in the period of record, at 1.11°C (2.00°F) higher than the monthly average, breaking the previous all-time record set just two months ago in October 2015 by 0.12°C (0.21°F).
Incidentally, 19 were the last years in which a similarly strong El Niño was occurring.
The annual temperature anomalies for 19 were 0.51°C (0.92°F) and 0.63°C (1.13°F), respectively, above the 20 century.
Only part of Quebec in northeastern Canada and the very southern tip of Argentina were cooler than average.
The global land temperature for 2015 was 1.33°C (2.39°F) above the 20 century average, surpassing the previous records of 20 by 0.25°C (0.45°F).
The 2015 temperature also marks the largest margin by which an annual temperature record has been broken.
Prior to this year, the largest margin occurred in 1998, when the annual temperature surpassed the record set in 1997 by 0.12°C (0.22°F).
The following table lists the global combined land and ocean annually-averaged temperature rank and anomaly for each of the 16 (two tied at #15) warmest years on record.
Much of the record warmth for the globe can be attributed to record warmth in the global oceans.
